In which I visit Nymans Gardens

Sunday before last was a day of beauty; Sunny weather, a picnic in the lovely gardens of a (partly in ruins) stately home, then an afternoon of watching my fiancé hurtle around an American football pitch attempting to practically kill his opponents whilst they attempt to practically kill him.
Whilst the boys got their practise on at the pitch, Karina and I drove (through the windiest but prettiest little lanes, thanks google maps!) to Nymans Gardens, which is a National Trust property not far from Gatwick.

Should that boy have a catapult? Its probably not original!

The house was used as a school for evacuees during WWII, I would bloody LOVE to go to a school in these gorgeous surroundings!

And last but not least, I guess I should include some snaps of the RIDICULOUSLY LONG AMERICAN FOOTBALL GAME!
